03:28<@planetmaker>hehe, that's a nice 'question' :P
03:28<V453000>WTF :D
03:29<V453000>is any of those actually correct?
03:30<@planetmaker>hehe :)
03:30-!-Japa_ [~Japa@117.214.5.177] has joined #openttd
03:32<V453000>id say it is something between 25 and 50 but idk :D
03:32<@planetmaker>it's either 25% or 50%. But obviously both is wrong :)
03:33<V453000>right
03:34<@planetmaker>if all four answers were different, chance would be 25%. But the "25%" is present twice... :)
03:35<V453000>that I know
03:35<V453000>so I assume the chance is something between 50 and 25 :D

06:17<Eddi|zuHause>the answer is 0% obviously
06:20-!-MJP [~mjp@hq.z77.fr] has joined #openttd
06:24<Pikka>obviously
06:32<Xaroth|Work>Eddi|zuHause: but that's not one of the answers ;)
06:32<Xaroth|Work>and if it were, it'd be wrong as well
06:32<Xaroth|Work>and the whole point of the question is, that it is invalid, and cannot be answered
06:33<Xaroth|Work>normally, it'd be 25%, but since there are 2 25% options, that would yield 50% .. which only has one option.
06:33<Xaroth|Work>so the answer would be 0%, as there's no right answer.. but 1) if that were an option, it'd be wrong and 2) it's not an option, so cannot be an answer
06:33<Eddi|zuHause>Xaroth|Work: who said the answer has to be given as one of {A..D}?
06:34<Xaroth|Work>that is implied by it being a multiple choice question
06:34<Xaroth|Work>you have to choose an answer, and you're presented with the options
06:34<Eddi|zuHause>nothing is ever implled
06:35<Eddi|zuHause>s/ll/li/
06:37<Eddi|zuHause>anyway, multiple choice questions are not popular over here
06:37<Xaroth|Work>I don't see the relevance of something being popular or not :)
06:38<Eddi|zuHause>it has. if you want to challenge the mindset, you need something that is commonly "known" :)
06:38<Xaroth|Work>knowledge of something and popularity are not related
06:39<Xaroth|Work>there are enough things that are commonly known, but not popular at all
06:39<Eddi|zuHause>like if you make a parody of knock-knock jokes, it won't work as well if the audience is not familiar with knock-knock jokes

07:39<Eddi|zuHause>planetmaker: maybe in the west. but in the east, no serious test i remember was multiple choice
07:39<@planetmaker>for me, that's the case neither. But if you look for instance at the (final) examinations for pharmacy students: they're all multiple choice
07:40<@planetmaker>disgusting if you ask me, but that's how it is
07:40<@planetmaker>and tests for driver licenses etc etc
07:41<Eddi|zuHause>ok, drivers license, but that's already more complicated because more than one answer may be correct. also it's only part of the test.
07:43<V453000>I had some english tests which were ABCD, and it was the toughest test I ever wrote :D it was made so that the answers were so similar, that before you read all 4 of them, it confused you to hell ... plus possibility of multiple being correct and 0 points if you have one missing or too many :D
07:44<V453000>actually negative points for incorrect answers, makes it that much cuter
07:45<@planetmaker>hehe. I like that scheme. And you pass, if your score is > 0 or so :)
07:45<@planetmaker>but it's psychologically not so nice :D
07:45<peter1139>anyone familiar with the vpn client on os x?
07:45<peter1139>racoon
07:46<V453000>yeah :D we had to get like 80%+
07:46<V453000>the teacher was seriously brutal
07:48<Eddi|zuHause>usual grading systems are ">50% = barely passed" ">90% = excellent"
07:48<Eddi|zuHause>with slight modifications
07:49<V453000>well this was more of a binary grading system for most of us :D passed or not ... though there was some grading but within the 20%, you didnt really care
07:50<@planetmaker>well, the 50% makes only sense, if you do not use multiple choice :)
07:51<Eddi|zuHause>what i never understood is, when we switched from the eastern (1-5) to the western (1-6) grading system, they basically split "fail" into two categories
07:51<V453000>:d
07:52<Eddi|zuHause>like you can "fail, but maybe there is hope" and "fail, and all hope is lost"
07:52<@planetmaker>well :) 5 is you failed. And 6 is you failed so hard, it's hopeless :P (or if you committed fraud)
07:54-!-Myhorta [~Myhorta@00018fad.user.oftc.net] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
07:56<Eddi|zuHause>there was a chemistry test, where a pupil dropped a sheet of paper to the ground, the teacher picked it up, and read outloud: "Spickzettel"... :p
07:57<@planetmaker>tehehe :)
07:57<Eddi|zuHause>when he gave back the graded test he said something like: "i'm fairly convinced you couldn't use this cheat sheet, so i give you the 5 instead of a 6" :p
07:59<Eddi|zuHause>there were also other teachers of the opinion "well when you went through the trouble of making a cheat sheet, then you probably don't need it anymore"
08:00<Eddi|zuHause>and in some university tests, it was actually allowed to have "one A4 paper, handwritten"

10:27<Eddi|zuHause>"We might as well be reporting that slithy toves gyre and gimble in the wabe." <-- can someone translate this for me?
10:27<Eddi|zuHause>(from http://www.cbc.ca/news/world/the-ukraine-crisis-through-the-whimsy-of-international-law-1.2559980)
10:30<Pinkbeast>Eddi|zuHause: Serious question?
10:31<Eddi|zuHause>Pinkbeast: not entirely serious
10:31<Pinkbeast>Well, let me know if you want me to answer it. ;-)
10:31<Eddi|zuHause>Pinkbeast: but it sounds like something that could either be an old and antiquated expression, or completely made up gubbledigoo
10:32<Pinkbeast>It's from Lewis Carroll's _Jabberwocky_, a nonsense poem that includes a number of made-up words that sort of make sense in context.
10:33<Eddi|zuHause>i don't think i ever actually heard/read that poem. only people referencing it
10:33<Pinkbeast>... at least one of which ("chortle") has become a perfectly normal English word
10:34-!-montalvo [~montalvo@ip68-108-148-173.lv.lv.cox.net] has joined #openttd
10:35<rubidium>add portmanteau to that list
10:35<Eddi|zuHause>it's a perfect example of what i tried to say earlier: if you make a parody of something that is so well-known in one culture, that parody may be completely lost in other cultures where it's not well known
10:35*Pinkbeast looks up which words were new. "Burble" is now fairly normal; "galumph" slightly whimsical, "vorpal" in gaming at least...
10:36<Pinkbeast>Errr although Carroll came up with the use of "portmanteau" as in "portmaneau word" the word itself is older
10:38<rubidium>but portmanteau wasn't used in English before (according to wikipedia)
10:38<Pinkbeast>rubidium: Even WP says "In then-contemporary English, a portmanteau was a suitcase that opened into two equal sections."

10:41<Eddi|zuHause>we have an expression for people that act like andy: "Ruhe auf den billigen Plätzen!"
10:42*Pinkbeast knows Ruhe from Coppelius's "Ruhe, bitte" signs but pray translate? :-)
10:42<Eddi|zuHause>(which translates to: "quiet on the cheap seats)
10:42<Pinkbeast>"Quiet at the back, there!"
10:42<Eddi|zuHause>something like that
10:42*planetmaker is unsure how that applies though :)

17:49<@planetmaker>you obviously need the first. And the latter is limited by the topic of the channel. somewhat

17:51<Eddi|zuHause>"A fisherman from Kiel pulled a message in a bottle out of the ocean dated 17th may 1913. if this date is confirmed, it would break the record of the oldest known message found, currently a message from 10th june 1914"

17:51<NGC3982>Aristide: Yes, i noticed.
17:52<NGC3982>Eddi|zuHause: Jeez. Should be easily dated, i guess.
17:52<Aristide>Sorry again if this share is out of rules

17:52<NGC3982>Is 1910-1915 too new for Carbon dating?
17:53<@planetmaker>yes
17:53<NGC3982>Damn nukes.
17:53<NGC3982>I guess there are better ways of dating something that "new".
17:53<NGC3982>Like ..asking people.
17:53<Eddi|zuHause>carbon dating is generally impossible for anything after 1945
17:53<Xaroth|Work>depends on the object
17:54<Xaroth|Work>and also how long you measure
17:54<Xaroth|Work>if you measure benzene for.. what was it.. 4 hours, you'd still have an error margin of 80-100 years
17:54<@planetmaker>NGC3982, not so much the nukes but the half-life time is 5700-odd years. so 50 years accuracy is... difficult, 100 years isn't exaclty easy either
17:54<NGC3982>Xaroth|Work: Oh my.
17:54<NGC3982>PM: I see.
17:54<Xaroth|Work>so yeh, you really want to do carbon dating on -old- stuff :P
17:55*NGC3982 puts a lump of barium in __ln__.
17:55<Xaroth|Work>like, hundreds of years at least
17:55<Eddi|zuHause>paper can be dated in other ways, like materials used for production
17:55<Xaroth|Work>else your error margin will be too extreme for it to be reliable
17:55<Eddi|zuHause>this was used to find out the "hitler diaries" were a fake, because the whitener used was only introduced in the 1950s
17:56<NGC3982>Eddi|zuHause: I read that in a book literaly five hours ago.
17:56<@planetmaker>Xaroth_, nah, carbon dating really is for new stuff :)
17:56<NGC3982>Gunnar Wall's "Heist of the century".
17:56<@planetmaker>for old stuff you want lead-lead or K-Ar :)
17:56<Xaroth|Work>depends on your definition of new :P
17:57<Eddi|zuHause>"new" being "since the beginning of civilisation" :p
17:57<@planetmaker>:)
17:57<NGC3982>lead-lead and k-ar?
17:57<Eddi|zuHause>so 1000-10000 years
17:59<Eddi|zuHause>for things younger than 1000 years you have to figure out other ways. for example you can figure out the year that a tree was cut down by the arrangement of the rings. they form a very unique pattern depending how long the summers and how hard the winters were
17:59<Eddi|zuHause>it's a very well researched topic
17:59<@planetmaker>yeah. But you need good sampling from that region for the dendro-chronology method
18:00<Eddi|zuHause>but that won't help you with a piece of cardboard :p
18:00<@planetmaker>NGC3982, other isotopic ratios to consider for radiometric dating
18:00<@planetmaker>Pb-Pb sometimes also called U-Pb. Depends on what to exactly look at
18:02<Eddi|zuHause><NGC3982> Gunnar Wall's "Heist of the century". <-- well at least in germany, it's a fairly well known topic. there are occasionally documentaries on TV and stuff.
18:03<NGC3982>Oh. It's still a measurement of decay?
18:04<@planetmaker>yes. There's several systems. Depending on material and time span to look at
18:07<Xaroth|Work>ooh, COSMOS airs this weekend :o
18:07<NGC3982>Already?
18:07<NGC3982>I have high hopes.
18:07<Xaroth|Work>same
18:07*NGC3982 met Tyson once.
18:07<NGC3982>I was like a four year old.
18:07<NGC3982>:e
18:07<Xaroth|Work>I would probably be the same :P
18:08<NGC3982>I did mot meet Sagan, though
18:08<NGC3982>I wish i could
18:08<NGC3982>:/
18:08<Xaroth|Work>I met neither :|
